Check the car battery i suspect that this is fat or has a dead cell you can tell if you have a dead cell by removing the battery tops and looking at the electrolite - acid (water type fluid in the battery) this should be clear if its brown or black your battery is scrap you will need a new battery. some batteries are sealed and cant be opend it may have an indicator on the top of the batteriy this should be green if this indicator is black then again you will need a new one. Also check to see if it is charging a good indication of this is if you switch everything on with the engine running. just rev it up a bit and the headlamps should get brighter that will tel you that the alternator is charging

Cut off while running 50-60mph and wouldn't start again.


Hi Carolyn:
Sounds like quite the adventure.
If I understand correctly, the car ran fine when you took it home, and you haven't used it since.
When you tried to start it, did it spin over and not fire, or did it not spin over at all?
I'd be suspicious that you may have had some contamination in the fuel tank and the rough bumps may have gotten some of it into the fuel system.
I'd check the fuel filter and consider putting an additive into the gas tank to make sure there's no moisture problem.
Time to go back to the lake!

Renault megane engine light flashing and car is juddering.


I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg
